Where does this stuff come from?

These first two photos show my empty scrap room.

I am very blessed to have a wonderful scrap area. But it has become a catch all place. I decided that the only way I could get it organized was to start over. So I pulled everything out of the room. This picture shows what came out of that room! Where does this stuff come from? It is like it mulitplies overnight.

Once I waded through it all I ended up with 3 bags of trash. I have moved it all back into my scrap room but I am still organizing it. So far I have gone through my scraps and reduced that pile greatly! I have gathered all of my photos into one place and am in the process of organizing them. I think I am going to put them all into slip in photo albums. I am going to use all black and get a bookcase of some sort to put them on. I put all of my completed scrapbooks on a shelf downstairs. Why didn't I do that before?! After getting my photos in order, I will start going through my scrap supplies. I am considering separating all of my embellishments by color but I'm not sure about that yet.

I will post photos of what it looks like once everything is in place.

I hope I have the correct Jennifer-
Tracie gave me a bag of "loot" at the crop Saturday that she said was from you? (you didn't have a profile pic and I can't remember your last name, so I hope I got the right Jennifer)

Thank you for sharing. I ended up using the green paper for the cover of my December Daily album. Very fitting that my cover should be made with a random act of kindness! Thanks and Merry Christmas!
